"The Whistler" was a popular old-time radio show that aired in the United States from May 16, 1942 to September 22, 1955. The show was known for its suspenseful storylines and its distinctive opening theme, which featured the sound of a whistling man.

Each episode of "The Whistler" began with the sound of a whistling man, followed by the narrator saying, "I am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes, I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak."

The show featured a variety of genres, including mystery, horror, and crime, and was known for its twist endings. Many well-known actors, including Orson Welles and Vincent Price, appeared on the show.

Despite its popularity, "The Whistler" was cancelled in 1955 due to declining ratings. However, the show has remained a classic of old-time radio and is still remembered by many fans today.
